Ocean Food Web Cruise

This Beach Creature Cruise aboard the Yankee Clipper is about the estuary

Join Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Education Center on a 'Beach Creature' cruise aboard Newburyport Harbor Tours Inc.'s Yankee Clipper through the Merrimack River Estuary! Teacher Naturalist, Lisa Hutchings will provide her expert pair of eyes to help your family find all the exciting sights and sounds of the marshes and varied habitats of Plum Island as you cruise along the Merrimack River.  This cruise will focus on the food web of the ocean, marine mammal facts and live beach creatures!

See for yourself by watching the Yankee Clipper Cruise with Joppa Flats slide show!

Each boat ride is 2 hours of hands-on science aboard the vessel as we cruise upriver on the Merrimack and down river towards the Atlantic Ocean. The tour will be focusing on the plants, birds, invertebrates and geology of the Great Marsh and estuary. Enjoy learning about local ecology with fun interactive props, table games, and demonstrations that will teach you all about size, behavior, adaptation, geography and conservation of the local river wildlife.

Don’t forget to bring your binoculars or borrow a pair of ours to see herons, egrets, terns, & cormorants, and marine animals like seals!
